In a week of very good Deals, this one struts its stuff. Fine and full of fun, listen to Jerry shine.
How Long Blues

St. Stephen
April 21, 1969
The Ark

I'm finding myself listening to a whole lot of DS>St Stephen>(William Tell sometimes)>Eleven from the Feb-April 1969 shows. What a wonderful way to spend my time. I sometimes feel my heart will burst with joy as I listen to Jerry's fiery,fluent,inventive and joyous playing.

The Ark

Another fantastic Dark Star.
The Eleven
April 21, 1969
The Ark

April 69-another of those months where there is hardly a poor song let alone a poor show. Fasten your seat belts and prepare to take off!
Dark Star

Dream Bowl

As it's now the 50th anniversary year, listening to a lot of 69 GD. These Dark Stars are just so spectacular.
Dupree's Diamond Blues
April 20, 1969
Clark University

I'm listening and downloading this show as I type. Another gem from '69. What a GREAT year. In this 50th anniversary year, I'm hoping that we might get some official HDCD releases of this show( or the Dream Bowl or the ARK shows......)
